She was a member of Good Shepherd Catholic Church.
In addition to her husband and parents, Berta was preceded in death by her daughter, Tammy Schock and two grandsons, Jeremiah and Zachery of Delphi, Indiana.
She is survived by her brother, Tom Popejoy (Deb) and their children, Mark Popejoy (Tara) and Laura Sewell (Mike); a grandson, Andrew Smith; and her sister-in-law, JoEllen Wolsko (John) and their children, Kevin and Emily Wolsko.
